RATIONALE: The shortage of available donor organs limits the development of liver transplantation. This case-serial study presents a novel way to expand the donor pool by using the other-wise discarded partial liver resection graft with hepatic benign tumor. PATIENT CONCERNS: From 2012 to 2016, 15 patients with hepatic lesions were admitted to our hospital. 12 patients suffered from right epigastric discomfort and 3 patients worried about uncertain diagnosis. INTERVENTIONS: Regular hepatic lobectomy was performed for all patients and after back-table management the resected partial liver grafts were used for patients with end-stage liver disease for liver transplantation...

Surgical resection of solid cerebellar hemangioblastomas can be challenging because of the profuse blood supply and tight space. We report two cases of solid cerebellar hemangioblastomas treated via surgical resection with the aid of preoperative endovascular embolization on the day of surgery. Case 1: A 36-year-old woman presented with a two-month history of headache and vomiting. Magnetic resonance imaging(MRI)revealed a right cerebellar solid mass, mild hydrocephalus, and apparent peritumoral edema. Angiogram showed a highly vascularized mass, three feeding arteries from the superior cerebellar artery(SCA), and a dilated vein draining into the confluence...

OBJECTIVE: Most of the ovarian cancers are diagnosed at advanced stages. As peritoneal carcinomatosis increases, especially when it extends to the diaphragm and intestinal mesos, probability of obtaining complete cytoreduction is reduced. Complete cytoreduction (residue zero: R0) is one of the main factors affecting survival [1-3]. Here we present a novel technique of stripping the peritoneal surfaces as a part of cytoreductive surgery in such cases. METHODS: A 55year-old woman diagnosed with peritoneal carcinomatosis was considered appropriate for primary cytoreduction after assessment of her thorax-abdominopelvic tomography, which revealed resectable intra-abdominal disease...

BACKGROUND: Calcified amorphous tumor of the heart is a rare, non-neoplastic cardiac mass characterized by nodular calcium in the background of amorphous degenerating fibrinous material. Clinical diagnosis of calcified amorphous tumor can be difficult, and current single imaging techniques do not specifically differentiate calcified amorphous tumor from other cardiac tumors such as calcified atrial myxoma, calcified thrombi, or vegetation. Complete surgical resection is the treatment of choice for both symptom improvement and prevention of embolization, as well as for pathological diagnosis...

Tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO) is a debilitating paraneoplastic condition caused by small phosphaturic mesenchymal tumors (PMTs) that secrete large amounts of the phosphate- and vitamin D-regulating hormone, FGF23. Tumor removal results in cure. However, due to high perioperative comorbidity, either from tumor location or host factors, surgery is sometimes not an option. Tumor destruction via cryoablation may be an effective option for inoperable PMTs. Three subjects with a confirmed diagnosis of TIO were studied...

To evaluate the association between severe pulmonary embolism events and bevacizumab, we conducted the first meta-analysis evaluating the incidence and risk of pulmonary embolism associated with bevacizumab-based therapy. We searched PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, and ClinicalTrials.gov up to September 2016 for randomized controlled trials comparing bevacizumab with no bevacizumab on cancer patients. Incidence rates, relative risks, and 95% confidence intervals were calculated using fixed- or random-effects models...

Embolic microspheres or beads used in transarterial chemoembolization are an established treatment method for hepatocellular carcinoma patients. The occlusion of the tumor-feeding vessels by intra-arterial injection of the beads results in tumor necrosis and shrinkage. In this short review, we describe the utility of using these beads as devices for local drug delivery. We review the latest advances in the development of non-biodegradable and biodegradable drug-eluting beads for transarterial chemoembolization...

Aberrant regeneration of the third nerve occurs as a result of synkinetic 'miswiring' of the third nerve following its injury, such as in third cranial nerve palsy due to tumor, trauma, or aneurysm. The case presented is an elderly woman with new vertical diplopia, which led to a diagnosis of a third cranial nerve palsy, thought to be caused by a 5 mm blister aneurysm of the posterior communicating artery. However, neuro-ophthalmological evaluation diagnosed aberrant regeneration of the third nerve, with the cause of her new vertical diplopia being an ipsilateral fourth nerve palsy...

Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) has been recently demonstrated as a method to induce rapid and extensive hypertrophy within a short time and has been employed for a variety of primary and metastatic liver tumors. However, controversies remain due to its high morbidity and mortality. To enable safer surgery, liver surgeons have searched for better technical modifications, such as partial ALPPS, mini-ALPPS, minimally invasive ALPPS, and Terminal branches portal vein Embolization Liver Partition for Planned hepatectomy (TELPP)...

Partial nephrectomy is the treatment of choice for small renal cell carcinoma (RCC) from the perspective of cancer management and renal function. However, when patients with RCC are of advanced age, exhibit severe comorbidities, including cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, or have hereditary RCC, ablative therapies, including radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and cryoablation are useful treatment options. In the present study, the clinical outcomes of percutaneous RFA for treating small RCC were evaluated. Between December 2005 and March 2015, 40 patients (41 renal tumors in total) underwent RFA and a total of 50 sessions of RFA were performed...

BACKGROUND: Carotid body tumors (CBT) are rare entities for which surgical resection remains the gold standard. Given their hypervascularity, preoperative embolization is often used, however, controversy exists over whether a benefit is associated. Proponents of embolization argue it minimizes blood loss and complications. Critics argue cost and stroke outweigh benefits. This study aimed to investigate the impact of embolization on outcomes following CBT resection. METHODS: Patients undergoing CBT resection were identified using the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project State Inpatient Database (HCUP-SID) for 5 states 2006-2013...

BACKGROUND: Paragangliomas are benign neuroendocrine tumors derived from the glomus cells of the vegetative nervous system. Typically, they are located in the region of the jugular bulb and middle ear. The optimal management is controversial and can include surgical excision, stereotactic radiosurgery and embolization. CASE REPORT: We report the endovascular approach to three patients harboring glomus jugulare paragangliomas. In all cases incomplete occlusion of the lesions was achieved and recanalization in the follow-up period was revealed...

A 55 year old male smoker presented with clinical T3N0 esophageal adenocarcinoma of the GE junction. He completed neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy with carboplatin/paclitaxel and 5040cGy of radiation. He had limited clinical response on restaging but no evidence of metastatic disease and completed a minimally invasive three field esophagectomy. This was complicated by a chyle leak requiring thoracic duct embolization from which he recovered well. Surgical pathology showed no apparent nodal disease or metastases but a poorly differentiated primary tumor with signet-cell features...
